PREFACE TO 1914-15 EDITION. 



WE have again diligently and carefully collected 
and arrranged useful information regarding 
Buteshire as it is bo-day — with its officials, householders, 
and business people — and once again have pleasure in giv- 
ing the compilation the honours of the Press. 

The previous four sections of the Directory are con- 
tinued, and to facilitate the search for information the 
different portions arc again printed on distinctively 
coloured papers — a feature of acknowledged benefit for 
expeditious reference. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the distribu- 
tion of their announcements facing the ordinary reading 
matter, we hope, with continued prompt receipt of orders, 
to be enabled to make permanent this decided benefit. 

Our desire is to overlook no interest ; and therefore, 
we respectfully solicit notices of alterations or additions 
as early as possible, so that these may be given effect to. 

This Directory is a much more important publication 
than many imagine. It is not only at hand for reference 
at all times throughout the county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the libraries of Glasgow, Edinburgh, London, 
Dublin, Cambridge, Oxford, &c, and in numerous business 
houses and agencies in busy centres throughout the king- 
dom; so we are particularly anxious that nothing of benefit 
to Buteshire be omitted, but that all interests have a good 
show, and everything be brought thoroughly up to date. 

Oar best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes, and prompt information and orders are, 
consequently, particularly acceptable and valuable.

COUNTY OF BUTE. 

THE COUNTY OF BUTE comprises the seven islands in the Firth of Clyde, viz. 
— Bute, the most populous ; Arran, the largest ; the Great and Little 
Cumbraes, off the Ayrshire Coast; Holy Isle and Pladda, off Arran; and Inch- 
maRnock, off Bute. 

The total Area of the Count*- (land and water, exclusive of tidal water) is 
139,658 acres, of which 53,510 are mountain and heath lands used for grazing. 3,806 
acres are under plantations, and 794 are covered with water There are 25,981 acres 
under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and grass, which is a gradual inroad on the 
mountain heath and hitherto uncultivated land. 

The principal Industries are agriculture, horticulture, and fishing The islands 
possess great and varied natural attractions, and are in the forefront as holiday resorts. 

The Population of the County (including its Burghs of Rothesay and 

Millport) in 1801 was 11,791 ; 1831, 14.151 ; 1861, 16,331; 1881, 17,657. In

males and 10,374 females') — being an increase of 255 in the ten years — 2'1 per cent. 

There were 4,270 inhabited houses in the islands. 

For 1911, the figures were as follows : — 

Males. 

Arran - - - 2,169 

Bute (including Rothesay) 5,081 

Cnmbrae - 704

Parish of North Bute. 

r l ""HIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
-* village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram-

that family— two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Bannockburn. 

At the last census, the parish contained 449 males and 518 females, total, 1718 
— being a decrease of 88 since 1901, which was an increase of 150 over 1891.

NATIONAL & INTERNAflQNAL PU BLICATIONS. 

BONNIE SCOTLAND'S RESORTS. 

A " winsome little volume " of 150 pages of concisely printed, succinct and interesting 
descriptions (in English), of between 400 and 500 Health, Profit and Pleasure Resorts, 
besides attractive introductory and appended pages. The idea of publishing this book 
was conceived while travelling abroad, and it has proved to be the parent of several 
international publications. Apppreciated wherever seen. Prices, 2d, 6d, and 1b, 
according to binding. Postage, Ad and Id. 

KONDUKANTO AL BELEGA SKOTLANDO. 
(Introduction to Bonnie, Bonnie Scotland). 

This booklet has the honour of being the first guide-book printed in Esperanto, and is 
a translation of the introductory pages to '' Bonnie Scotland's Resorts." Published at 
Id, it has a wide circulation, and is cordially welcomed by Esperantists everywhere 
Postage, id. 

BON I SKOTLAND— In Reformd Speling. 

This, again, is an extract from the introductory pases of Bonnie Scotland's Resorts — 
in the orthography of the Simplified Spelling Society and (in commemoration of the 
Centenary of.Sir Isaac Eitman, the inventor of the most perfect and popular system of 
shorthand writing), in Phonetic longhand. Shorthand, practieally, would oe impos- 
sible in the present spelling, and the incubus retards national progress. 32 pp., Id. 

SCOTTISH SCENERY— SKOTLANDA PEJZAGO. 

A handsomely-printed booklet of over 34 pages from photographs of views representative 
of Scottish scenery, with the descriptive letterpress printed in Esperanto as well as in 
English. This publication is much admired, and the dual language descriptive of places 
has since been adopted in this and other lands. Price, 6d ; postage, Id. 

BEAUTIFUL SCENERY OF THE BRITISH ISLES. 
(Bela Pejzago de la Brita Insularo.) 

There are now over 150 regular propaganda periodicals printed in Esperanto throughout 
the world, besides a very much larger number of volumes of translations of national 
productions, all for the delectation of the cosmopolitan family of appreciative Esper- 
antists. We hope soon to launch a more comprehensive publication, as here indicated. 

IS ESPERANTO WORTH LEARNING? 

A clever booklet by Bernard Long, B. A., Camb. Marvellous value. It shows the utility, 
simplicity, and steady progress of 'this one united universal auxiliary language through- 
out the world, where all people that on earth do dwell may (and many actually now do) 
intelligently speak and write to each other, though not knowing a word of each other s 
language. Printed in English, price Id, 2d, and 5 cents ; postage. M. A reduction for 
quantities. 

SCOTTISH SONGS— SKOTAJ KANTOJ. 

National, Sentimental and Humourous. 
Printed on Post Cards and Leaflets. An International Postal Coupon will get samples 

and price list. 

LA ENAMIGO DE LA NAOIOJ. (Courtship of the Nations.) 

An International Publication par excellence. The articles are written (in the neutral 
international language, Esperanto), by persons representing the different countries 
throughout the world Each article is characteristic of the land in which it is produced, 
and as each place can be written about from several coigns of| vantage, there is a like- 
lihood of this publication appearing periodically with fresh articles — all tending to show 
that, notwitstanding diverse circumstances even in individual states, all are members 
of one great human family, and that there is genuine pleasure in better acquaintance. 
Price Jd each ; five post free for international postal coupon. 

' LA SKOTO ALILANDE. (THE SCOT ABROAD.) 

It is said that " a Scot is never at Home until he is Abroad," and this brochure (in the 
International Language), gives glimpses of the North Briton's perigrinations all over 
the world, and fraternizations with the inhabitants of other lands at their homes. This 
booklet, translated from appended pages to "Bonnie Scotland's Resorts," is in the Press.

each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel of the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in trade. 

The earliest publications connected with llothe-

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 



In Part III of our Directory, we do not aim at 
printing such complete lists of Householders as will 
be found in the official Voters' Boll, published two 
or three months hence. While, however, we miss 
several names of the hundreds of persons whose 
houses are closed during the Winter months, we 
print those new ones which will not appear in 
the Voters' Roll until they have tenanted their 
houses for more than a year.

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 

This Directory now-a-days contains the information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory and the Almanac of past 
years, and the date of its issue is gradually becoming mid- 
way between the original dates of issue of these two 
publications. We begin our researches early enough, but 
the airy Summer publications must hustle out while the 
sun shines. The Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent resident. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
for them, but something of far greater importance — the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One edition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (and prepare for probable additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers 

Will Secretaires of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual reports, 
and lists of office-bearers, as information for the next 
issue of the Directory 1 

We are not yet enabled to publish all the information that we 
desire, but that does not prevent us compiling (in antici- 
pation of greater reciprocity) more than we at present 
print. 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other places of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland." 



HIGGIE & UO. 



22 Bridge Street, Rothesay, 
June, 1914. 



Bute County Directory. 



OPI NIONS OF THE PRE SS. 

" It is splendidly compiled." — Campbeltown Courier. 

" Being invaluable, it should have a large circulation." — Argyllshire Advertiser. 

" Contains a large amount of information carefully revised to date." — Glasgow- 
Herald. 

The Directory is indispensible to business people in the county." — Rothesay Ex- 
press. 

" Useful local annual. A useful book of this kind is a convenience that no busy 
trader can afford to be without. ' — Buteman. ,_ 

" Every little parish has its own pages in the book. It contains much general in- 
formation relating to the County of Bute. It is well worth the price — one shilling." 
— Ardrossan Herald. 

" Will be found invaluable to those having any connection with Rothesay ; and as 
for the many visitors who are attracted to the island, they could scarcely get on with- 
out it." — (ii eeflock Herald. 

" If the importance of a place is to be judged from the local directory, as claimed, 
then the County of Bute in general, and Rothesay in particular, must be said to occupy 
a high plane." — Evening Times. 

" The Directory should be indispensible to residents in the County of Bute, and all 
who have official or business relations with it. It is really a valuable volume for the 
inhabitants of the County of Bute." — Largs and Millport Weekly News. 

" Indeed in this book is to be found all the information which the most inquiring 
person requires to know about the county. The matter is well arranged. Such a book 
is a necessary part of the equipment of every office which does business with islands 
whose interests are so closely associated with those of Glasgow." — Evening Times. 



Besides the opinions of the Press we have received spontaneous testimony of the 
usefulness of the Directory — from professional and business gentlemen and pleasure- 
seekers, not only in the county but beyond it. 

A Rothesay public official wrote : — " The Bute County Directory has many times 
proved most valuable when visitors have come to me inquiring for the addresses 
their Rothesay friends. In fact, we could hardly do without it." 

An Arran postmaster wrote : — " I am much obliged for your courtesy in sending 
me the Bute County Directory, but do not think it reasonable that I should have all 
the benefit of the information you have compiled with so much care and expense entirely 
free of expense, so I take the liberty of enclosing postal order for Is 4d for cost and 
postage.
